Phils, Halladay shut down Mets 2-1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - April 30, 2011 (WPVI) -- Roy Halladay pitched a seven-hitter to help Philadelphia set a club record with its 18th victory in April as the Phillies beat the New York Mets 2-1 on Saturday.
Halladay allowed one run and walked one while striking out eight to lead the Phillies to their third straight victory. Philadelphia went 17-5 in April 1993.
The NL Cy Young award winner cruised in the beginning of the game- his first 18 pitches were all strikes before missing high with a fastball to Jose Reyes.
It was his seventh straight win over the Mets dating back to the 2006 season.
Mets starter Jonathon Niese (2-3) took the loss after Placido Polanco's sacrifice fly in the seventh broke a 1-1 tie.
